Iowa Audiophiles
Des Moines Ia here.  West side.   
Reasonably sensitive speakers for tube amps, max $2k/pair, new or used
My Buchardt S300’s sound excellent matched with my HH Scott LK-72 integrated amp.  
A somewhat but not entirely rhetorical question:
Just had my HH Scott LK-72 gone thru by a local guy and it is not going anywhere.  
Favorite Guitar Solo
Jerry Garcia- Cats Down Under the Stars from How Sweet It Is cd. 
MQA is for chumps
Word on Chumps.  Chicago Transit Authority in 192 MQA is just plain weird. 
Lonely Weekend - Kacey Musgraves 
Chicago Transit Authority
Listened to this album hundreds of times since it was first released and the MQA 192 version on title sounds weird as hell.

Best "Bang for the Buck" you have owned?
Superphon revelation preamp I traded an ice fishing tent for that I had in 1990 and now a Job 225 amp-  bought a HH Scott LK72 that was recapped etc in 2019 for $500.  Beautiful piece.
